Kids aged 6 months to 10 years wander from workstation to workstation, tickling the ivories on a toy piano here, stacking blocks there, and socializing with their peers. The center offers 10 stations in all where kids play and learn with interactive materials such as puzzles, dolls, and a toy kitchen—each part of The Bee's Knees Learn & Play‘s Montessori-inspired methods for engaging young minds. Founded on the idea that kids learn more efficiently when play and education are intertwined, the facility's educators let kids learn from each other, the instructors, and the toys populating the play space at their own pace. They let children of different ages mingle to nurture development, and also add structure with 60-minute age-specific classes that feature activities such as singing, story time, and take-home projects. Kids aged 2–3 years work with letters and colors, and kids aged 5–10 years may begin mastering Spanish before reenacting telenovelas at the puppet theater. In keeping with the Montessori method, there are no mechanized toys onsite. Instead there are wooden rocking horses, dolls, manual train sets, and other child-powered toys that provoke kids to use their full imaginations. Parents can also bring their kids to the learn-and-play center for open play and private birthday parties.
Being able to manipulate the mood of a party can make you feel very powerful, whether it is to bring dancers to the floor or happy tears to eyes. Nobody really wants to do that at their own party, though, and that's where JD from Peterson's Parties comes in. He relies on experience from performing at venues such as Speakeasy Lounge, and he consults with customers in advance to make sure that he's playing the right music for their event. The company also dispatches photographers and other workers who can complete a party or make it seem like you're wearing a wedding dress for a normal reason.
